Welcome to fabulous Monte Carlo! Arriving in the afternoon of the third day of your journey, you will spend two nights at the exclusive Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo. After taking a rest, wake up on your fourth day and head off in your Ferrari to explore the alluring region of Provence, stopping by charming towns as you weave your way along the scenic roads. Return to the hotel that evening for the final night of your journey, and wake up to spend your final morning discovering the region of Monaco at your own leisure.
A world-renowned area in the principality of Monaco, synonymous with glamour, wealth and prestige, this is the home of the famous Formula One Grand Prix, where the world’s millionaires are drawn like magnets to one of the sporting events of the year. Its most well-known landmark is its breathtaking Belle Époque casino, oozing opulence from its ornate exterior and equally impressive interiors, open every morning for visitors to nose around before the more sophisticated evening events take off. Inspiring Ian Fleming’s James Bond novel, Casino Royale, as well as featuring in screen adaptions for ‘Never Say Never Again’ and ‘GoldenEye’, it’s no surprise that this is considered one of the Mediterranean’s glitziest spots.
It’s not all style and no substance, though. The surrounding area of Monaco is steeped in a rich and colourful history; founded in 1861 independently from its neighbour, France, it stands with its own monarchy with the Sovereign Prince or Princess as its head. Cultural enthusiasts will relish the Old Town quarter, while there are magnificent walks, parks and gardens all within easy reach. There are also more than a hundred shops and restaurants in and around the area, while the Palace of Monaco wont fail to impress with its fortress exterior and flamboyant renaissance décor – from April to October, you can peek inside the State Apartments, and if you stop by at five-to-twelve in the afternoon, watch the daily changing of the guard. Just outside, you may also wish to admire the classic car collection of the Prince, where almost one-hundred vehicles are lined up for viewing.
